Our Raw Premium Red Maca Capsules contain 100% pure Maca powder made from Black Maca roots. All of our Maca powders are carefully and consciously grown, processed and handled. They come from an organic farming co-op near Junin, Peru, the traditional farming area for Maca. We work only with producers who own and manage their lands at a local grass roots level. The co-op of farmers is committed both to organic farming and to producing the highest quality Maca products available anywhere. We're very happy to support their work.

Our Raw Premium Red Maca is made from 100% Red Maca roots. What makes this Maca “premium” is the way in which it is processed. Instead of being sundried, Maca roots are fresh processed immediately after harvest. After coming out of the ground they are cleaned in a citrus solution, ground into a pulp and low temperature dried. This special processing leaves more glucosinolates in the final product. The level of glucosinolates is standardized at above 1% in our Raw Premium Red Maca. This type of Maca:
- Comes from a modern approach to processing Maca developed in the past 25 years
- Is fresh Processed - Maca roots are dried in dehydrators immediately after harvest
- Is never heated over 105F / 40C
- Has higher glucosinolate content - nutrients which may help prevent cancer
- Is much stronger tasting - has a more noticeable Maca flavor with more spiciness
- Is limited in supply since it must be produced from fresh roots during annual harvest (June-August)
- Costs more as the process is more labor and equipment intensive
- Is the most complete and potent all-around Maca available
Best Used For:
Red Maca powder has been shown, under phytonutrient analysis, to be higher in certain compounds that support the body in antioxidant and antitumoral activity. We recommend it:
- For men looking to use Maca for prostate support
- For women's fertility and libido (We recommend Black Maca for male fertility)
- For bone density - most important for women and children
- For everyone wanting to experience the highest antioxidant and nutrient levels of all Maca powders
- For everyone just starting with Maca (including children) due to the sweeter, more pleasant taste
Please note that results may vary from person to person.
Advantage of taking Maca capsules:
Using our Maca capsules have unique benefits as compared to Maca powders. First, when using capsules, it's easier to get an exact dosage. Second, for people who shy away from the taste of Maca, capsules are a great alternative. Finally, Maca capsules are particularly useful on the go. They are easy to take on business trips, when travelling, camping etc.
We also offer Raw Premium Heritage Harvest Maca powder in three different sizes.
Maca keeps well for up to 24 months provided that it is stored in a sealed container out of direct sunlight and at below 70% humidity. (More storage and use tips)

I ordered this product as I have been reading about the positive health benefits. I found the Maca Team to have a wide range to choose from and competitively priced. I have been taking the Red Maca for a couple of weeks now and feel more energetic than I have for a long time. I would definitely recommend buying from here as the service has also been excellent
I purchased Red Raw Maca for fertility, mostly trying to get my hormones back to normal after being on the Depo Shot. And to my surprised it worked miracles! Within months my period became regular, my body was becoming curver, and energy levels went up. I recently purchased the Premium Red, it’s great but the Red Raw works better for me. Overall, I love this product and will continue to buy, I never leave without my Maca!
I love these capsules!!! I run out pretty quick so luckily the shipping doesn’t take long!
Taking the red maca. I have seen a remarkable difference. I'm feeling more energetic; having less cravings esp for sweets; feeling more balanced, less 'hormonal', etc. I take 8 of the capsules per day and it kicks in pretty fast- within @ half hour of taking them I can feel the marked difference to energy levels. (I first took maca years ago and then was taking too many per day- I think 12 or more capsules, and it made me over-energetic, couldn't sit still, was over-wired and even perspiring, so I stopped. Decided to try again and this time is great so learned it is important to take the correct dose for you.) I can honestly say that I really rely on the red maca. My husband takes the black and he feels the same about it for him. The only issue is that none of the research is prepared to confirm whether you can still take maca while pregnant. We are TTC and - as the research is about 50/50- if I fall pregnant I think I will continue to take it -at least first trimester (but will discuss with midwife before final decision).
I definitely love this Maca. I take 6 capsules in the morning before my work shift between 3-4am and I don’t have that burnount by 8-9am. It’s amazing!!! And my weight is balancing finally (had previous thyroid issues). Thank you guys!!! Im about to buy more right after this review!
I have been taking the red Maca for a few months. I love it. It ,gives me energy. I just feel like doing things. I told my friend about it. She loves it too. We don't like to be without. I bought the black Maca for my husband. He doesn't say much about it, but he did tell me when he was running low. Better than the others I have tried.
